DYKSTRA HONORED… The Senior CLASS Award named South Dakota State forward Jordan Dykstra as a Senior CLASS Award Second Team All-American, making him the first-ever Jackrabbit and Summit League men’s basketball player to earn the honor.
The award, chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I men’s basketball coaches, national basketball media and fans, is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I men’s basketball. To gain eligibility for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – classroom, community, character and competition.
Dykstra led the Jackrabbits in 2013-14 with 16.0 points per game and led The Summit League with 7.6 rebounds per game and with nine double-doubles. In the classroom, Dykstra maintains a 3.71 GPA as a biology/pre-dentistry major and made the Dean’s List in every semester at South Dakota State.
Doug McDermott, a three-time All-American from Creighton, was named the 2014 Senior CLASS Award recipient.
ANDERLE COMMITS… Brookings Blizzard forward Conor Andrle has committed to play hockey at Division I Army next season.
Andrle played in 56 games for the Blizzard this season and finished the year second on the team in scoring with 34 points. His 16 goals were tied for the lead on the team. He also had 18 assists on the year. Because of his outstanding player, he was voted the Offensive Player of the Year by his teammates. In 34 games for the Blizzard last season Andrle had 17 points and was named the team’s Rookie of the Year.
The Army Black Knights are a NCAA Division I program and compete in the Atlantic Hockey Association. Hockey was first played at Army in 1904. Andrle will be an important part of an Army recruiting class that has been described as one of the best in the past 20 years.
